  Well the last two nights brought high wind warnings to the Red Lodge area. I thought we should come up to camp and check for any damage. To our surprise, with the warm weather, we were able to drive the entire way up to camp! Who would ever think that would be possible in February? It did take a few tries at a couple of drifts and 4 wheel drive in low. The first stop was the pump house. All the ropes and tie downs were still connected but the pump house had been up rooted and laying on its side! All the plumbing and electrical connections seem to be ok. Trees were down all through camp but not one cabin was damaged. One branch came down on some wires and broke them from the pole. An extension ladder and some connectors and it is as good as new. As for the pump house, it will have to wait till April!
